Question Printer problems, can't find a printer that is attached to a windows network.

I am a newbie to linux. I have SuSE 10 linux on one of the machines in my windows network. Suse has found the network (MSHOME)and recognizes the other computers on the network. My windows machines do not "see" the linux machine. I have been unable to get the linux machine to find any printers attached to any of the other computers.
Any help would be great.
